Further success for OceanWise Raster Charts XL
The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is the latest customer to take our Raster Charts Excluding Land (XL) product joining a prestigious list of marine industry organisations, such as Vattenfall, Qatar Petroleum, Scottish Government and the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) in Northern Ireland.
Based on the familiar nautical chart series, Raster Charts give contextual marine information dovetailed with terrestrial mapping to provide a rich background layer in support of Marine Planning. Raster Charts “XL” has had all land and land-based features removed, thereby allowing users to combine the marine raster data with a choice of more accurate, up-to-date and attractive land mapping data options. In addition, meta-features such as scale bars, source data diagrams and title blocks have been removed meaning they no longer hide more useful information.
The charts have also recently been extended to include the Arabian gulf. Raster Chart XL coverage now includes UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the newly released Arabian Gulf. This product extension forms part of OceanWise’ ongoing commitment to product development. Watch this space for further development!
